NFS: The Run 49.99 on PSN Store this week

Sonic CD, Duke Nukem DLC also out today.

Update: Sony has contacted Eurogamer with a change in pricing for Need for Speed: The Run - it will be 49.99, not 69.99 as originally listed.

Original story: 5/10 racer Need for Speed: The Run is an eye-watering 69.99 on the PlayStation Network Store this week.

The Run becomes available to download alongside other full-retail launches such as Alice: Madness Returns (47.99), Dirt 3 (39.99) and zombie survival game Dead Island (35.99).

At least there's Sonic CD, priced at a wallet-soothing 3.59. Its classic 2D gameplay arrives from 1993 virtually untouched, albeit with Trophy support and the unlockable ability to play as Tails.

There's little else new for PS3 gamers, although those subscribed to PlayStation Plus get Marvel Pinball free, and other tables half price. Criterion Games' wildly different Burnout Crash! is also 50 per cent off.

Assassin's Creed: Revelations adds more multiplayer characters and Trophies, while Duke Nukem gets new single and multiplayer content. And if you did buy Need for Speed: The Run, there's some new DLC for that too.
